DAUGHTERS OF SION
Journeying from Lent... through Easter... to Pentecost... and now to June, and the month of the Sacred Heart!
“Behold this heart which has so loved men.” – Jesus Christ to St. Margaret Mary Alocoque
Month of the Sacred Heart
Solemnity 24th June 2022
In 1675, Jesus told St. Margaret Mary that He wanted the
Feast of the Sacred Heart to be celebrated on the Friday
after the Corpus Christi octave. In 1856, the Feast of the
Sacred Heart became a universal feast.
St. John Paul II, a great devotee of the Sacred Heart, said,
“This feast reminds us of the mystery of the love of God
for the people of all times.”
In 2022, we celebrate the Solemnity of the
Sacred Heart of Jesus on June 24.
Join us as we pray a novena to prepare our hearts for this wonderful feast day! We begin on WEDNESDAY 15TH JUNE and finish the day before the feast.
So we are making a novena as an act of love to Jesus.
Each day we will do Lectio reading for about 20 minutes,
followed by around 10 mins reading the novena daily reflection.
Finish each prayer time with the Litany of the Sacred Heart.
(We include also the Litany of Humility which would be a great way to open your time of prayer.)
